Thread: BWO Patterns

    Default BWO Nymph Patterns

    What's your favorite BWO (Baetis) nymph patterns?

    I saw a great pattern a guy was using on the Beaverhead the other day... now, of course I can't remember how it was made.. almost looked like a very small poxyback green/olive stone

    ETA - sorry - I should have said.. nymph patterns

    The Baetis are drawing lots of attention on the rivers in my area these past couple of weeks and I have been hauling the mail nymphing ahead of - and during - the hatch with the tandem of #16 simple BHPT (olive) followed by a #18 RS2 (olive). Put nearly four (4) dozen in the net over my last two (2) trips to the Provo River... most preferring the RS2.

    Simple BHPT


    --Hook: #16 scud hook
    --Bead: small, tungsten (copper colored)
    --Thread: UTC 70 (light olive)
    --Tail/Body: three (3) pheasant tail fibres
    --Rib: fine gold wire
    NOTE: Tied on a scud hook, the #16 fishes like a #18


    RS2


    --Hook: #18 Nymph (2X heavy, 1X long)
    --Thread: veevus 14/0 (brown)
    --Tails: two (2) white Microfibbets, tied split
    --Abdomen: one (1) strand of six (6) strand DMC floss (medium olive)
    --Wing Tuft: small loop, folded Pearl Braid
    --Thorax: dubbed Superfine (adams gray)
    NOTE: This fly fished "OK" for me in it's traditional tie... switched to the Pearl Braid wing tuft (thank you for the 100th time Charlie Craven) and it really seemed to add a trigger effect and the catch rate went way up.


    Depending on the depth of your stream/river you may need to add some weight to get 'em down... especially in fast water.

    Those are all some nice, easy looking patterns! I also like Barr's Emerger for BWOs.

    Great ties, Joe.

    Are the olive PTs standard pheasant tail or dyed olive?

    You said you are fishing them tandem so you are nymphing with the RS2 "emerger." Good thinking, I've caught some nice fish nymphing with spent spinner flies.

    Frankly, I use emerger patterns for BWO's/Baetis - most frequently...like these:



    RS2 Olive...



    Bat Wing Emerger...



    RS2 Black...

    ...and this one:



    Owens Emerger...

    I fish 'em from the bottom to the top of the water column...
